Neon Happy Birthday Card
Make an adorable birthday card using stamps and stencils! Dimensional glitter adds incredibly festive flair to any project, and the products from Therm O Web make it so easy to accomplish this look.
From the Designer: "Nothing says “happy” quite like sprinkles, and nothing gets their attention quite like neon! Combine two fun elements in one unique card that screams “Happy Birthday, Sweet Stuff!” You’ll love the versatility of the Sweet Stuff Stamp n Stencil Collection."
